About Melissa

After spending several years at an Allegheny County based law firm, Melissa relocated to Titusville, offering her knowledge and skill to primarily Crawford and Venango Counties.  Melissa used to focus on family law matters, but has since branched out into estate planning, where she has found a new passion for helping folks ensure they are ready for the inevitable and the "what ifs" that sometimes arise in between.  


Melissa grew up in a small community in the greater Johnstown area.  Her parents were blue collar workers.  She was raised focused on working hard to achieve success.  Melissa is a small town, country girl at heart, unafraid of getting her hands dirty or working hard.  When Melissa is not hard at work to meet the needs of her clients, she enjoys running, hiking, gluten free baking, gardening, "lumberjill activities", and most importantly, spending time with her four children.
